CURRENT PROJECTS:

north williston road scoping study

As the only bridge over the Winooski River between Route 2A and US 2 at Exit 11, North Williston Road is a valuable crossing point over the Winooski River. With the Circumferential Highway discontinued, traffic volumes along the road are expected to grow and further strain the roadway. The crossing is also critical to bicyclists and pedestrians, providing one of few river crossings off the state highway system. The goal of this project is to identify the appropriate roadway cross sections, drainage and stormwater enhancements, and safety improvements to accommodate the increased demands associated with nearby land development, growth in commuter traffic, demands for growing bicycle and pedestrian traffic, and changing hydraulic conditions.

BLAIR PARK PEDESTRIAN FACILITY SCOPING STUDY

The Blair Park Pedestrian facility scoping study will evaluate and identify pedestrian facility needs and issues in the existing conditions and explore in detail several potential alternatives to connect existing sidewalk gaps and recommend a preferred alternative. The project area begins at the intersection of US Route 2 / Blair Park Road /Harvest Lane and extends northerly along the Blair Park Road loop. Currently, sidewalks exist along sections of the Blair Park Road loop. This project will provide a preferred plan to complete the loop around Blair Park Road and connect to Route 2.
